  1. I was just at Bonefish this past weekend and was told that the Pad Thai is not gluten free as they use soy sauce in the sauce. I was very disappointed.
  2. Thanks for the input. I usually do all my product checking via email since I work full time and it is hard to make these calls during the day. But this one will probably need a phone call as I am not getting a response. Thanks again everyone!
  3. Very frustrated trying to find out what Tocopheryl Linoleate is derived from! The cosmetic companies are slow getting back to me (if at all). And don't really know if I would trust the customer service reps that handle the questions. Does anyone use products that contain Tocopheryl or Tocopherol, and if so, do you have a problem with that ingredient. Thanks so much.
  4. Wow, we can have Cocoa Pebbles? Didn't know that. Thank you for all the suggestions.
  5. Mascara

    Don't know if you ever found a gluten free waterproof mascara, but I've been using Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Mascara (can't tell the difference between this mascara and waterproof). Just got the email from Estee Lauder regarding the ingredients today. Here's what they said: Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Est
  6. I keep buying snack foods (i.e. potato chips, tortilla chips, cheese curls) that say "Gluten Free" on the package and then I'm reading about people being glutened by them. I've been buying Utz brand because it says gluten free on the package, but have read here that some people are really having severe reactions. Are there any tortilla chips, potato chips or cheese curls that are safe? All suggestions welcomed! And thanks. I've learned so much from visiting these forums.
  7. Thank you. I haven't heard of NOW's cocoa butter, but I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks again
  8. Just received an email from Neutragena this morning.... can't seem to get situated with a hand or body lotion...any recommendations?? Thanks. Here's email: Thank you for contacting Neutrogena
  9. Does anyone know if Ponds Cold Cream is gluten free? Thanks.
  10. Hi, I'm new to this forum (recently diagnosed) and have learned quite a bit from reading all of your input. I was unclear about the cola issue, however. In particular the caramel coloring, so I wrote to Coca Cola and Pepsi. Haven't heard back from Coke yet, but did receive a reply from Pepsi this morning: Thank you for your email message. The caramel color used in our beverages is not derived from wheat, oats, barley, rye, spelt or tricale. The additional carbohydrates from which caramel is derived are glucose or sucrose syrup. There is no Gluten in any of our carbonated beverages or our juice drinks. We take great care at Pepsi-Cola to ensure that the highest standards are met in everything we do. In our products, packaging, marketing, and advertising, we strive for excellence because we know our consumers expect and deserve nothing less. Thanks again for writing. I hope this information is helpful. Margaret Corsi Consumer Relations Representative margaret.corsi@pepsi.com 011874952A Hope this helps, and thanks...
